The LAN has launched an effort focused on providing operational guidance for implementing successful Category 3 and 4 APMs (LAN’s Refreshed APM Framework). This work, tentatively titled a Roadmap to APMs that Drive High Performance, will be an implementation guide that payers can use to work with providers, purchasers, consumers, and others to accelerate the creation and adoption of successful APMs by diffusing the following information:

  • Criteria to evaluate the success of APMs
  • Best practices from APMs that drive high performance


The APM Roadmap is being developed by a multi-stakeholder Work Group, comprised of experts with extensive experience in the design and implementation of APMs. Guided by a set of criteria linked to high performance in cost and quality measures identified by the Work Group, the LAN will reach out to APM examples in the field to learn about best practices, how they overcame challenges, and other contextual factors influencing success.

The APM Roadmap also aims to capture lessons learned from APMs that were less successful and were unable to meet the identified success criteria. Both lessons learned and identified best practices will be used to capture the work that needs to be done to operationalize a successful APM.

The initial draft of the Roadmap to APMs that Drive High Performance and related work will be shared more broadly at this year’s LAN Summit on October 22, with an eye towards getting additional input from the field.  The LAN website will highlight the Working Group’s milestones in the coming months, so stay tuned!
